Deadly Police Shootings Reach Nearly 400 Through May of This Year

By Steve Neavling

Police killed at least 385 people nationwide during the first five months of the year, far more than the rate tallied by the FBI, the Washington Post has found.

The tally shows that more than two people are killed on average a day, a rate that is more than twice the one tallied by the federal government over the past decade.

“These shootings are grossly under­reported,” said Jim Bueermann, a former police chief and president of the Washington-based Police Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving law enforcement. “We are never going to reduce the number of police shootings if we don’t begin to accurately track this information.”

Because of rising tension between police and African Americans, the Post is detailing every use of deadly force by police.

In the first five months of the year, about half of the victims were white. When adjusting for population, black people were killed at rates three times  that of white people or other minorities.

Racist serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin was executed early this morning after a murderous cross-country spree from 1977 to 1980, the USA Today reports.

The 63-year-old, who targeted black and Jewish people, was executed in Missouri.

Franklin claimed responsibility for 20 murders but was convicted of seven.

He also has admitted he shot Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt, who was paralyzed in the 1978 attack.
